We are getting close to the best time of year in the woods and the signs are on things stating to wake up. We have the frogspawn and the beginnings of gorse flowers but now the birdsong is starting up again. In the bottom part of the forest, there is a single wood-pigeon on the go for the last few walks.
I spend this walk dodging showers – it was most bizarre. At my usual leaving time it was pouring rain yet the entire country was dry according to the radar image. Anyway, I gave it 10 minutes and it became quite a nice afternoon for a walk.
